Browser Accessibility Features

Most browsers have built in accessibility features such as the ability to increase the magnification of fonts, change the colour of the text and to turn off images and style-sheets. For full details, visit the accessibility websites of popular web-browser developers:

Linux - KDE or Gnome
Mozilla Firefox

Increasing text size

Some users might find screen text easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed. To do this, simply adjust your browser's settings:

Microsoft Internet Explorer: go to the View menu, select Text Size and then either Larger or Largest.
Netscape Navigator: go to the View menu and choose Increase Font until the text is the size you desire.
Mozilla Firefox: go to the View menu, select Text Size and then select Increase. The same effect can be achieved by using the keyboard shortcut keys; Ctrl and + (at the same time).

Changing background colour

Many browsers provide functionality to adjust the background colour of the page or the colour of text:

Mozilla Firefox: go to the options menu (Tools > Options), in the General tab, click Fonts & Colours.
